    Cargo Insurance

    Although GWL makes every effort to ensure the safe delivery of your goods, sometimes loss and/or damage do occur. While GWL arranges for the transportation of your goods, by law, it is the carrier who bears responsibility for loss or damage to your freight. For more on GWL’s role and what you will recover should a loss occur without insurance, click here.

    How Can You Protect Yourself?
    “All Risk” Shipper’s Interest Coverage provides the owner of the cargo with coverage for direct physical loss or damage to the cargo without the need to prove liability. If a loss occurs, you will be paid directly and any recovery possible from the carrier will be handled by our subrogation specialists.

    Advantages of Insuring Your Cargo through the GWL Policy
    Covered Losses are paid without the need to prove carrier negligence. After your loss is paid, we work with the carriers to ensure your historical losses are minimized.
    GWL can offer broad coverage at competitive rates
    Claim payments based on insured value, not weight of pieces missing/damaged or Carrier’s limited liability
    GWL will report and handle claims on your behalf
    * GWL is not the insurance company and purchases insurance for its customers from surety companies. GWL’s liability is dictated by its Terms and Conditions of Service.
